Legal Aid Union Members' Protest Bar Association Award

100 NYC Legal Aid Attorneys | Yes, Schreibersdorf too once worked at The Legal Aid Society. Unlike Maxian, however, Schreibersdorf and several other of our former colleagues responded to Giuliani's attack by setting up a nonunion contractor, Brooklyn Defender Services (BDS), which successfully bid for millions of dollars cut from the unionized Society. more...  0 Comments

Antiwar Protesters Hold Boisterous Tax Day Protest in Midtown

Eric Volpe | The event started at 4:00 PM with a vigil and leafleting at the IRS office at 110 44th Street. Between five and six PM the protesters marched on the sidewalk to the General Post Office at 8th Avenue and 33rd Street, accompanied by music from the Rude Mechanical Orchestra and banners from Bread and Puppet Theater. Some of the marchers chanted enthusiastically, while others handed out flyers, including the War Resisters’ League pie chart, to puzzled and amused passersby. more...  28 Comments

The Framing of Mumia Abu-Jamal: an interview with author J. Patrick O’Connor

Hans Bennett | In his new book, O’Connor argues that Abu-Jamal was clearly framed by police, and that the actual shooter was a man named Kenneth Freeman. O’Connor criticizes the local media, who, he says “bought into the prosecution’s story line early on and has never been able to see this case for what it is: a framing of an innocent and peace loving man.” more...  0 Comments

The De-Stabilization of NYC (Indypendent)

Bennett Baumer | After a pair of legislative victories in the New York City Council penalizing landlord harassment and protecting Section 8 tenants, the housing movement hopes to continue its luck in the political muck that is state government. The Real Rent Reform Campaign seeks to stem the slow and steady erosion of the rent stabilized housing stock through vacancy decontrol. more...  0 Comments

Remembering MLK 40 Years Later (Indypendent)

John Tarleton and Jessica Lee | King was cut down by a sniper’s bullet on April 4, 1968. He was 39. Summing up his life two months earlier, King said, “If you want to say that I was a drum major, say that I was a drum major for justice … I won’t have any money to leave behind. I won’t have the fine and luxurious things of life to leave behind. I just want to leave a committed life behind.”

Forty years later, people continue to fight for social justice in the streets, courtrooms, classrooms and through personal growth and introspection. more...  0 Comments

Open Letter to the WBAI & Pacifica Communities on the Tainted WBAI LSB Election

Justice and Unity Campaign | We are the 8 listener candidates for the WBAI Local Station Board from the Justice & Unity Campaign. We believe that owing to a devastating combination of outrageous violations of the fair-campaign rules by one group of candidates and serious mismanagement and errors by the Local and National Election Supervisors, the integrity of this election has been fatally compromised. The list of inappropriate actions is extremely long, and this letter can only mention the most egregious. more...  3 Comments

Statement from Pam Africa re. Mumia court decision and April 19 Philly Demo

Hans Bennett | Last week’s court decision was not a victory. While we obviously prefer to have Mumia alive, instead of executed, life in prison without parole is an unacceptable sentence for an innocent man that was convicted with a blatantly unfair trial. more...  0 Comments
